I want to use Dreamhost to back up all of my personal files from my home PC. However, some of these files are mp3’s (legal ones). As long as I put them in a folder outside of my web directories, is it alright for my to store them on my server space?
This is fine as long as you’re not distributing copyrighted material that you don’t own or have permission to.
For example, someone with copyrighted music in FTP-only space that gave out their FTP user/pass to other people would be violating our ToS.
General archiving, or uploading so that you can transport to work/school/whatever is fine, though.
Yeah, I’ll be the only one who will access it. Thanks, just wasn’t sure. I don’t want to upload 6 gig of music only to find out I wasted my time.
I use WebDAV, but you can just as easily use FTP to a directory that’s not in your domain folder.
